    1992

  • 1992-01-05

    Event live, "Tokyo DOME 3DAYS ~Hametsu ni Mukatte~ (東京ドーム3DAYS ~破滅に向かって~)", is held for three consecutive nights. X becomes the first Japanese artist to hold three consecutive concerts at the stadium.

  • 1992-08-24

    A press conference to announce HEATH as the neww bassist is held at the Rockfeller Center in New York. The band also signs a deal with Atlantic Records in Japan and Warner in the United States (no release in the US eventually happened, however, due to TOSHI's pronunciation problems). The band name is also changed to X FROM JAPAN (later renamed X JAPAN) to distinguish themselves from the American band X. The members start working on their new album, but due to scheduling conflicts with the members' other projects and other issues it takes a year for them to release new materials. Their activity as X JAPAN would eventually consist in spare live performances and one more album release from 1993 to 1996.

Dada Records was an independent label of which Nobukatsu Hayashi (林 信克), a manga artist, music journalist and acquaintance to Yoshiki, was the boss. I can't for the life of me find any more releases on the label, so I assume that it wasn't active for a long period of time - only around 1985.

Funny trivia: one of Nobukatsu's novels has the same Keizo Miyanishi illustration on the frontcover used on THE STALIN's trash. I almost thought it was a Michiro Endoh's biography the first time I came across it haha.

A couple of years ago, someone posted on Twitter this ad he did for I'LL KILL YOU (still a sono-sheet at the time) in a magazine:

Most if not all Japanese-released stuff up till 1997 has been added, these however have to still be double-checked and translated.

A good chunk of these are double-checked; I will continue to do so this week. Re-releases, laserdiscs, and compilations need to be added. Film gigs are to be removed and actual lives are to be added.

Made a start by adding all 80's releases (LPs, Tapes, Cds, Cassettes, Promo's etc) More will be added at some point.
